Publisher's Summary

Still recovering from his life-threatening wounds, private detective Charlie Parker investigates a case that has its origins in a Nazi concentration camp during the Second World War.
Parker has retreated to the small Maine town of Boreas to regain his strength. There he befriends a widow named Ruth Winter and her young daughter, Amanda. But Ruth has her secrets. Old atrocities are about to be unearthed, and old sinners will kill to hide their sins. Now Parker is about to risk his life to defend a woman he barely knows, one who fears him almost as much as she fears those who are coming for her.
His enemies believe him to be vulnerable. Fearful. Solitary.
But they are wrong. Parker is far from afraid and far from alone.
For something is emerging from the shadows....

Charlie Parker reboot.

I really like this series but (to me) Parker seemed to have been drifting in many of the previous books. 'Parker on a mission' is one of the more interesting aspects of the series and he seemed to have lost that for a while. The events in 'Wolf in Winter' and this book have given him his edge back and, although still recovering, he's much more driven & lethal than before.

The supernatural element is still there but seems more focused (I can't think of a better word). Parker's relationship with his daughters is both touching & ominous. The scenes with Angel & Louis are still great and I'm looking forward to seeing how Parker's connection to The Collector plays out in the next book, which I've just downloaded.

Excellent narration; Jeff Harding is always great though.

Overall, these last 2 books have really renewed my interest in the series and I'm excited for the next one.

Lewis not Louie

The added humor in the delivery is alright - the last 2 books I read called Lewis Louie - doesn't fit his formally dressed over the top character--as long as the story lines don't drift any further into "Steven King" style as the previous few have--Charlie Bird will remain a favorite--it would be good to hear him called that again too
